Very nice outdoor deck facing the waterfront. Good selection of paninis and simple Italian dishes. Prices are reasonable and wait staff was attentive.

We sat outside, wonderful view of the water. The soups we had were warm, light on flavor. The marinara for our focaccia was underflavored, but the olive bread was very nice, and the amount given was generous. Service was good

We really enjoyed our dinner at Panini's. They accommodated my son's peanut/tree nut allergy and my gluten sensitivity. We ate inside, but they also have a beautiful patio in back that overlooks the waterfront park. The food was great, and the staff was very friendly.

We visited after walking on the Spanish Moss Trail. The portion sizes are large and very fulfilling. The atmosphere is relaxing and clean. The staff was friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant when in town.

If you're concerned about this, I recommend avoiding this place all together! The food is great: well seasoned, presented and portions are ample. Of course, they do have salads with oil and vinegar on the side to dress it up. More
